The Marcos and Adina Katz Kollel embodies, in the highest sense, the concept of Torah Lishmah. With over 100 student, most of whom are still in the Yoreh Yoreh semikha program, it is the largest kollel in RIETS. Its program of shiurim and intensive self-study provides training for prospective teachers and scholars, and enables men to engage in advanced Talmudic scholarship. Students study approximately 20 dapim of Gemara per semester and may be eligible to receive a monthly stipend. The kollel meets from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and includes regular bechinot and a night seder requirement. This years, the kollel is learning the second half of Masechet Yevamot.
